Raising Awareness, Inspiring Action

The whales and dolphins of the Atlantics are under threat as never before- from populations of Blue whales and Right whales on the verge of extinction in the North Atlantic, to Belugas decimated through pollution in the St Lawrence, Vaquita reduced to dozens rather than hundreds in the Gulf of Mexico through by-catch, and river dolphins in Brazil being destroyed by deforestation and pollution.

The AWF, through its operating base in Tenerife where it has run the volunteer programme on the whale watching boats for some twenty years, provides an opportunity for you to make a difference.
